Friday Linkups: Bunnicula
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
You've been invited to a costume party and the theme is classic literature characters. Who would you go as?
Even though Great Expectations is far from my favorite book I'd love to go as Miss Havisham. Second place would be Anne from Anne of Green Gables.
Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! is very aware of it and I was fortunate enough to win a copy in a giveaway last year. This year I've been reading it as a bedtime book to the Tornado (age 6) and he's been loving it. It's perfect to get a good taste of Halloween without getting too scary.
I shall never forget the first time I laid these now tired old eyes on our visitor. I had been left home by the family with the admonition to take care of the house until they returned. That's something they always say to me when they go out: "Take care of the house, Harold. You're the watchdog."
I love that the narrator is a dog and I love that it's not really apparent until it explicitly says that he's the watchdog!
There was Chester, with Mr. Monroe's towel draped across his back and tied under his neck like a cape. That was strange enough, but on his face was an expression that sent chills down my spine.
I feel the need to point out that Chester is a cat and I absolutely love the mental image of a cat with a cape around his neck. The chilling expression isn't too hard to picture though!
So what do you think? Keep reading? What are your favorite Halloween books?
